NBC announced that Quantum Leap has been renewed for a second season. The news comes midway through the sci-fi drama's freshman run, which is currently on a midseason hiatus until the new year.

A continuation of the 1989 series of the same name, the show has been a solid performer for the network, ranking as the #2 new broadcast series of the season among adults 18-49. It is also NBC's best-ever drama launch on streaming platform Peacock.

"We're leaping into a second season thanks to the incredible work by our cast, producers, writers and everyone who has played a role in giving this iconic NBC series a new life," said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "As we continue to bring audiences to our must-watch dramas, it's gratifying to know 'Quantum Leap' will have a prominent place next season both on our NBC schedule and next day on Peacock."

Quantum Leap takes place 30 years after Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the accelerator and vanished. Now, a new team led by physicist Ben Song has been assembled to restart the project to try and understand the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it. But everything changes when Ben makes an unauthorized leap into the past, leaving his team behind to figure out why he did it.
